The role of micro enterprises in poverty reduction in low income informal settlements:a case study of women fish vendors in kibera slum, Nairobi, Kenya.

The relationship between informal settlements and poverty may be explained from the perspective that in most cases poor persons are the ones who live in slum areas, areas that lack basic facilities. Engagement in micro and small enterprises has been viewed as one of the ways of alleviating poverty not just in slums but elsewhere as well. Micro-enterprise offers a means for underserved individuals to work their way out of poverty, contribute to their communities, build assets and achieve self-sufficiency.
